Divorce Financial Services

Carrie is a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® professional, as well as certified to act as a third-party neutral and team member for collaborative divorces. As a CDFA®, Carrie can help you process the financial issues related to your divorce and better plan for this transition in your family’s life.


Sometimes families change in unexpected ways. Divorce, in particular, is a special situation that requires a thoughtful analysis of its long-term financial impact for all family members. In addition to an attorney, a CDFA® should be one of the first professionals you contact as you begin the divorce process.

Utilizing her expertise in financial planning and taxes, Carrie can help you think through the financial costs of divorce, develop a realistic picture of your financial lifestyle, and make a plan for achieving your new financial goals. In addition, for couples working through the collaborative divorce process, Carrie can serve as either an expert resource or a member of the team to help you reach a mutually agreeable resolution.
